How do I merge layers without losing the layer mask?
I have two layers. My primary layer has a mask and the other layer is the one I used for stamp and healing. I want to combine them and retain the layer mask.
As you see from my attempt above, the layer mask disappeared.
I tried approaching it by using a temp layer, moved the mask to it, merged my other two layers and then dragged the mask back to merged layers.
But I think there is a better way, isn't there?
- New Layer
- Merge Visible
- Move the mask.
Using shortcuts it's very quick....
Move the mask (Hold the Option/Alt while moving to copy the mask)
This also can retain the original layers so it's non-destructive.
